“FROM THERE” is a portfolio of memories by a Palestinian artist, an attempt to interpret the known versus the unknown of finding home, self, identity, and the challenge it presents in the creation of art. The content and narrative behind each piece explains her Palestinian origin. She uses textured surfaces to convey memory's persistence and perseverance. In some cases she incorporates words from the Quran to capture the wisdom and power of the verses and to communicate their imaginative energy.
